How to Tan – Tour your face at home!

Last week I introduced contouring using faux tan. Isn’t it such a nice feeling when you wake up and your lashes are done your brows are done - so let’s get that contour done too!

I’m going to go through the Expert steps to achieve a ready contoured face, expert step are slightly longer but will achieve better results! Here are some some tools I said you would need in my last blog and some other tools if you wanted to upgrade to expert contouring.

Ensure you start your prep the day before contouring!

Day 1 scrub your face -
This is done the day prior to ensure your facial pores will be closed to prevent the tan entering and clogging the skin.

Day 2 moisturise and prime
Using and oil free moisturiser apply round circular motions, upwards from your chin to your forehead.
By using an oil free moisturiser this enables the tan to take to the face whereas oil can act as a barrier towards tan.
If like myself you have large pores on your face, you can use a primer before applying the tan which prevents those little black dots that show up.
I recommend again an oil free one.
Benefit ‘Porefessional’ Primer is my expert tip here!

Optional – Apply a gradual face tan from neck up to your face. If this is a skin care gradual tan, it can replace your moistuiser if not just apply less moisturiser before you apply the face tan.

Using your ‘Got Your Back’ Tanning Mitt, put your product on the mitt using it as a palate this is the best base to use as it doesn’t soak up all the tan and any left on the mitt could be used at the end so its not wasted.

Ensure your medium size beauty blender has been run through warm-hot water and squeezed thoroughly to ensure it is just slightly damp.

-With your stipple brush dap it into your fake tan then onto a clean area of the mitt to take any excess off.

-Pat the tan across your forehead, from your temple in a semi-circle like shape over to the other side of your face.

-Using your medium size beauty blender dab over gently ensuring it looks neat and smooth.

-Add more tan to your stipple brush as and when needed.

Bring the tan down from your temples under the cheek bones with the stipple brush being very careful no not to let the brush spread too thick.

This is where your EXPERT tool the ‘mini’ beauty blender comes in handy.

Replace the stipple brush for the mini beauty blender - Dab the pointy end into the tan, then onto the face under the cheek bones.

Depending on your face shape you may want to continue this over your jaw line, the middle or sides of your nose.

Where ever you want to achieve a slimming look is where you want to shade.

See examples below of areas you can shade.

Ensure where ever the tan is applied, to go over it with the medium side beauty blender which will gently buff it in the skin and smooth.

Optional - Lightly Spray a mist over with a fake tan aerosol can.

Place your hands inside each mitt end that doesn’t have tan on and lightly pat over the whole face. The side that does have left over tan on you can brush down the neck if it needs more colour

Leave overnight, very lightly rinse your face in the morning – DON’T SCRUB- just pat dry.

If you still feel nervous about trying this, sit tight I will be creating a ‘how to’ video soon!
